I think Verizon upgrade my DSL speed -eek-

Today while I'm downloading stuff from the newsgroups, I noticed my download speed is 20% faster. I've been on the 640/90 DSL package from Verizon for 3 years already. They no longer offer the 640, but 768 as the minimum in their package. I'm wondering if they did it for all their 640 customers. I gotta check with my friend tomorrow.

I don't need those speed test cause my newsreader has a speed indicator. I always get full bandwidth download speed from news server. Now, the speed is 20% faster. Let see how Verizon will screw me by increasing my monthly bill. My package costs $39.95 a month, but their slowest package, 768/128, is $49.95.

I pay $39.95 a month for 768/128, and have for nearly two years. When I started the service it was $49.95, and then they dropped $10 off the price for some reason, and kept it there since. I doubt they'll screw your bill up.
